While retaining his exciting and original compositional voice, Gordon Lee moves from the big band of "Flying Dream" (OAT 22016) to the piano trio for his second OA2 release. Along with his band of Northwest all-stars, Lee explores a diverse set of 7 originals and 5 compelling arrangements of compositions by Antonio Carlos Jobim, Lee Morgan, and a Native American chant by his former boss and mentor, the late saxophonist Jim Pepper.
•"Lee unravels a series of original melodies that are insinuating or soulful or both." - Jazz Times
•"Pianist Gordon Lee's solos are often vast feats of architecture, their immense proportions looming up with great suddenness... symphonic precision as well as spontaneous improvisation." - Oregon Jazz Scene
